4 College Junior

Academics: I love learning about biochemical pathways, but it's certainly a hard major. The classes that are required to complete the major are difficult and academically demanding.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I think it's ranked a lot higher than it should be. The insanely large classes and the way they have the same path for everyone in a major is really unfortunate. It's difficult to connect with your professors.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Hope's education courses are excellent and thought-provoking. I know they will help me become an excellent teacher because the courses really prepare you to teach a wide range of students. Hope also has many options to study abroad which I will take advantage of in the next few years.

4 College Freshman

Academics: To be in my major, it is difficult. There is a lot of work that goes into it, and there are a lot of credits that you need to obtain. However, it is possible, and there is a lot of help if you need it. There are research opportunities that you can pursue. You just have to find a professor that is performing research you are interested in, and talk to them. If they have room in their lab, and are willing to let you in their lab, than your in. This is not paid, and it does not count for any credits. This is mostly for people that are interested in research like me.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Fairly heavy workload, engaging and enthusiastic teachers, free tutoring, small class sizes
